When you control the mail you control..........Information

I think that it is the kind of font that goes under the writing line like the quantities in molecular description. Like where the 2 goes in H2O or CO2.

I suspect that the subby is inferring that NEWMAN is said under one's breath like in Seinfeld.

they got nothing on the trailers filled with mail in the Maryland Suburban sorting facility in the late 1990's - 3 or 4 trailers left filled for years.

"The mail never stops! It just keeps coming and coming and coming, there's never a let-up! It's relentless! Every day it piles up more and more and more! And you gotta get it out! But the more you get it out the more it keeps coming in! And then the bar code reader breaks, and it's Publisher's Clearing House day...!"

Look we told you union rules say nobody but Bob can touch that mail and Bob's had a heart attack and died. Once the contract is amended we will get right on that.

HOTY candidate.

"Newman!" is one of my expressions of disgust when life confounds me. It's either that, "bugger!" or "KHAAAAAAAAN!"

Good one, subby.

FrancoFile: What's with the jacked-up font?


Fark's Link Submission Thingee prevents you from using all caps...so apparently subby had to resort to alternate encodings to force the capitalized head.

Ah, if the headline said "NEWMAN" I would know where to look.

However, the headline reads "N(square square square square)N" on the mobile site.

NEWMAN with missing letters?

Is this some sort of jocularity?
 
2011-11-15 03:38:06 PM  
God, I hate my mail carrier. The stupid sob can't figure out the difference between street names and numbers. I constantly get mail put in my box for the guy on the street behind me at least once a week. I have also come up missing important letters that have been mailed to me but never showed up. I have even gone to the postmaster with this issue and nobody there cares.

A serious bunch of overpaid, lazy government employees. I'M TAKING ABOUT YOU POS CARRIERS AT THE TUSTIN, CALIFORNIA BRANCH!

I feel better now, thank you.

Apparently, whoever dumped this stuff hadn't heard that one big pile is better than two little piles. Gonna need twice as many color glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one this time.

That's what comes up as this on my browser as well

What coding was subby trying to use?
 
2011-11-15 03:59:28 PM  
It's outrageous, egregious, proposterous!
 
2011-11-15 04:02:09 PM  
I fail to see how "N box box box N" = Newman, but whatever.
 
2011-11-15 04:03:28 PM  
All I see is "N - rectangle - rectangle - rectangle - rectangle - N.

Maybe i need to upgrade my font?

But whos name was on the envelope at the bottom of the pile? Obviously they are at fault...

Here I cum, down your way,
I can come twice a day,
I'm your mailman.
I can come in any kind of weather,
Don't you know my bags are made of leather?
I don't mess with keys or locks,
I'll stick it in your box,
I'm your mailman.

Summon Wilford Brimley to the thread.
 
2011-11-15 04:45:50 PM  
The headline uses Unicode's phonetic extensions, range 1D00-1D7F along with the "Latin Letter Small Capital N". Just in case you were wondering.

Your phone probably does not contain a font with the phonetic extensions if you see N box box box N. Or you haven't set it to show as unicode.
 
2011-11-15 04:51:32 PM  
Maybe this helps a little...I looked at the post under Firefox, IE, Chrome, and finally on my iPhone 4S. Only with the iPhone 4S do i see "NEWMAN" in a sort of 1/2 step down font subscripted font.

Any clue how to make these other browsers display the font correctly? I even installed Safari on my PC but it didn't display correctly there either.
